A few months ago I replaced my lamp xl-2000u, it works fine, however recently my tv turns off to stand by mode every 22 minutes then turns back on after a minute and keeps repeating the cycle. I have checked and resecured the lamp to be sure it was secure but it does not seem to correct the problem. is there something else I can try before spending billions of dollars on a tv repair man?

Re: Stand by light
If this is happening I am sure the standby light should be flashing also. Count the flashes and the gap between them and its the error code for the fault. Consult handbook or sony forums for a solution. Hope this helps.

I recently had this issue on my Samsung HL-R4667W. Did the new lamp (phillips) but it still wouldn't light up and was flashing the lamp light and then stanby. I started to remove the rear covers of the TV thinking maybe the wheel or ballast finally gave out. After removing the lower cover I noticed a wire hanging at a unusual angle from a circuit board. I touched it and it fell off. Traced the wire back to the main control board and found that it was a ground wire. I re-soldered it to the board and the TV fired right up. My other lamp was fine too. I hadn't moved the TV in 4 years and only once since I bought it in 2006 so I can't think of anything that would cause it to come loose short of bad soldering from the assembly line. That was a year ago and it works fine still.
Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (from a few minutes to a couple of hours).
Additionally, have you tried powering the unit using another outlet?
Pls post back for any development(s) or even the lack of it.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Hi, Question shows its Sony KDF-50WE655 dlp tv that has lamp inside and it seems its time to replace lamp. Did you replaced lamp in tv recently? If not, replace it. Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and please buy Sony original lamp for better result. Thanks.
I had the same problem the bulb was good but no power it was the transformer 975.00 under warranty from brandsmart. It worked for 90 days then the mother board went bad it cost 1000.00 they won't fix it .they gave me 1098.88 for a new one .Im gonig to sell mine for parts . I also have the stand for my tv also .
I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.
I had the same issue. Replaced the lamp and now mine is working. Normally this is a sign that the bulb is out, however - I would say now that either:
1. Your lamp is defective.
2. The balast in your TV is defective.
